Yan Lo vs Sonia 25ss - quick rundown

Yan Lo vs Sonia Criid
25ss - starter box + one blister.

Supply Wagon - not that anyone payed any attention to that ;-)

Yan Lo, Yan Lo, what to do with Yan Lo..

I'm not used to this. I play Lady Justice, she runs forward and hits people.  Yan Lo does not.  Well, he shouldn't anyway.

masters of the path and izamu - model review

Well folks, miracles will never cease, I finally got some hobby time.  OK, this was largely thanks to being sick as a parrot (Norwegian Blue, lovely plumage), but never the less, some hobby time.  Twice, in one day!
So, I've managed to get my Masters of the Path crew (Yan Lo) and Izamu together.  It was a bit of a bitch frankly, but good fun in it's way.
Completed crew
This was my first exposure to Wyrd's plastic figures.  I am used to working with plastic via Games Workshops figures, these are, in many way a different kettle of fish entirely.  There's no denying there's an excellent level of detail on these sculpts, but that means some very small and delicate parts.

melee - area of effect

A friend recently bought me the Yan Lo - Masters of the Path box set.  Not a set I'd been looking at but I'm glad he did, it's fascinating.  As a result I've been looking at minions to expand the set and it will be no surprise to anyone that the first one I'm going to buy, hopefully tonight, will be Izamu, the Armour. A 10ss heavy hitter that's also an Ancestor.

Now I've not spent much time reading up on Yan Lo or Izamu so I'm not hear to talk tack-ticks but I have noticed one thing.  Izamu has a 3" melee range, and he's on a 50mm base (at least I believe it's 50mm).  So what?  An extra inch of melee is nice but not earth shattering right?
